Video Design, Multimedia Consultant
Jason’s unparalleled ability to capture the surreal and the strange has propelled him into a league of his own and uniquely defines the film projects he creates. Musicians, bands, actors, and visual artists seek him out for collaboration, and Jason truly enjoys the “out-of-the-box” expression which creative collaborations with other artists fosters. While studying film at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee,
Jason dove into the working world and quickly found himself on notable projects such as the Academy Award nominated North Country (Warner Brothers) but his own creative projects are what make Jason so significant to the midwest film scene. In 2004 Jason began to pursue personal projects culminating in the production, writing and direction of his first full length feature film, Stimulus which won the Audience Choice Award at the Big Damn Film Festival.
After Stimulus, Jason began a more ambitious project, The Telephone Game. An entirely improvised film that examines the creative process, The Telephone Game allowed Jason to continue exploring his interest in theater and the performing arts as well as gave him a vehicle to expand his passion for character based themes. In 2010 The Telephone Game garnered the Best Cinematography Award at the Minnesota Underground Film Festival. Rogue Cinema claims “Director, Jason P. Schumacher takes his film in some very unique directions and it turns out to be a thought provoking insight into the heart of creation.” Jason is currently working on a new short film, “Brian Tumor”, a dark comedy which is already raising eyebrows.
